My name is Eli

I just figured out I can chomp on my toes when getting my diaper changed...















I'm getting better at sitting up, but need a little assistance...















My eyes are very blue and my hair is still looking reddish/blonde...















I'm almost 6 months old and think most of what comes out of peoples mouth is hilarious. I could be better at the sleeping through the night thing, but I'm cute and get away with pretty much anything I want. I'm just now starting to think this whole eating concept might be something I should delve into further. And yeah, so I know, my ears stick out a tiny little bit.

Crazy cute. Crazy. And the ears are there to help him balance...totally necessary.

Maggie hasn't found her toes yet, but I think it is mainly because she is too chubby to get them to her mouth.

Aww... he IS cute enough to get away with anything. I love his red hair. My daughter Bunny had red hair. I was admittedly a little bit sad when it turned blond (though, a really lovely shade of blond.)

How are you feeling without him sleeping through the night? My daughter still doesn't... though it's not so bad now. I can just comfort her and go back to sleep. She usually just wants to see me. But when she was a baby, I was a MESS. I see other people with babies who are sleep deprived and still have their sanity remarkably in tact.

Also, I'm so sorry that I never wrote back to you about Disney World. I feel like such a jerk. I'm generally pretty good about that. I think that I was so excited about the book you mentioned that I got carried away forwarding the title and finding it... and forgot to thank you.

So, though it's belated... thank you!!!!!

Hey, I got the Disney book. My mom got one too.

It's so overwhelming.

Also, I got my girls these little Kids guides to Disney... which is a bunch of reviews of the parks, with lots of pics and then little blurbs that other children said about them.

This has been priceless. Neither of my children are able to read well yet, but they're both so interested in all of the pics and having me read to them about the rides and the shows.

Did you go to Epcot when you were in Disney? My mom is convinced that it's too old for my girls. But we generally like museums and educationally focused adventures. The book says to go there first so that your children do not have the expectation that it be some huge adventure park. That sounds about right to me. What do you think?
